Flashback Friday 23.0 - Butterfly!

First, I have a question: there are 4 blogs that I added to my reader within the same couple of days, ages ago. Those four blogs disappear from my reader over & over - I re-add them every time I sign in, and sometimes they disappear without me even signing out. How do I fix it? When Blogger updated, they stayed put for about a week, and then started disappearing again.

One of those blogs is Flashback Friday, and as a result I spaced on actually following through and posting my first butterfly card, even though I saved the link to it & meant to ages ago. The challenge ends tonight (May 18), so it's last minute, but you still have time to link up too!

My first butterfly card was posted on World Card Making Day 2010:

I go back to this design over & over, in different variations, because well, butterfly. And bling, and glitter. All those things are always good.
xoxo,
Jessi

So very pretty! No wonder you return to the theme! And no, no help for Blogger here. It does have its little quirks!

Yay for glitter!!! LOL! I just love the sparklies:)

And yes, I've experienced the disappearing blogs too! It pops in and out for no apparent reason. So annoying!

That is definitely a looker, Jessi! Those sparkly butterflies are so pretty. That was your first? You nailed it!

Yup. Can't go wrong with butterflies, bling and glitter. I'm diggin' the pinks and purples here too.

Blogger just totally confounds me. Blogs seem to come and go from my list on a daily basis. And now my profile picture won't appear when I leave a comment. I just get a black and white minus sign. what's up with that??

Except for now when my picture has reappeared! Hallelujah!
